Another dry Saturday with a light wind from the south / south west. The Pink route heads to Puddletown via Sturminster, Ansty and Cheselbourne, returning via Bere Regis, Stickland and Turnworth. The Blue route goes to Piddletrenthide and Milborne St Andrew and back over Bulbarrow. Meanwhile the White route also heads to Piddletrenthide and across to Cheselbourne before cresting Bulbarrow.

Cafe Corsa is closed at the moment, so groups can decide where to stop for coffee.

Meet at 9.00 am at the Wheels car park, Station Road, Gillingham. Please ensure you download your chosen route to your GPS device, and remember to bring your ride essentials, particularly sufficient liquid refreshement.

The Blue Group sometimes split into a ‘light’ and a ‘dark’ blue group, and there is nothing stopping other groups doing the same, or for a slower group to do a longer route or a faster group to do a shorter route. All rides are no drop rides but please select a group suited to your ability!
